Transforma - The Boneyards EP
Release Date: 02/04/2021
Label: Korsakov Music
We’d like to let you in on a little secret.
Before the pandemic hit, we were in the latter stages of launching a brand new neuro label to push all those amazing artists on the fringes of dnb out there to create the heaviest of the heaviest basses. COVID forced us to cancel the entire project for the foreseeable future, and we decided to give one of the remnants of these plans a bump up to the main label. And with good reason, as you’ll hear.
Transforma murders. He surprises. He distorts. He twists and turns. He smacks it out the park in one tune and catches it in another. The Boneyards has a bit of everything. The title track wobbles and grooves straight out of hell onto your ear drums, a masterclass in creative neuro sound design. Warpath is exactly what you need to be hearing when on a Warpath for it’ll surely help any murderous wartime rage flourish. To top it off, Mindflayer takes The Boneyards EP into even darker realms, as malevolent a sonic entity as it’s Stranger Things namesake.
Just when you think you’ve heard it all, The Boneyards takes a huge U-turn for what’s almost a single within an EP, with the enchanting Give Me Something ft. Marianna Ray the most emotional thing Transforma has ever made, soothing melodies and impeccable vocal work blessing the listener from start to finish.
Closing The Boneyards in as fitting a fashion as any EP closer, yet another marvellous Marianna Ray vocal cord blessed incantation from Transforma’s ever evolving mind, Gone is the ethereal send off we definitely don’t deserve but got blessed with anyway.
There is something for everybody on The Boneyards, and the sonic 180 midway through is a definite sign of more things to come from Transforma. Only the future will tell what he comes up with next, but as this EP will attest to, we will all be grasping at straws as to guess what it will be. We for one can’t wait!
